May is International Internal Audit Awareness Month

The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) supports efforts to raise awareness of the internal audit profession and its value. The aim is not only to dispel misperceptions of the profession, but also to enhance the business community’s knowledge of the essential role internal auditing plays in strong organizational governance, internal control, and effective risk management. When management and boards of directors come to fully appreciate the value of internal auditing, they ensure the internal audit activity is adequately sourced and effectively utilized. Similarly, as the general public becomes more familiar with what internal auditors do, the number of individuals who consider it a viable career option rises, fueling the profession with greater talent.

As an internal audit professional, you play an important role in raising awareness and elevating the profession. Whether you are actively involved in your local chapter, new to the field, part of an extensive audit team, or the sole practitioner at your organization, there’s something you can do to elevate the profession.

To guide you in this effort, The IIA is pleased to provide a comprehensive toolkit, offering a variety of creative ideas — from the simple to the elaborate — as well as tips, multimedia tools, and template.  This toolkit is designed to be engaging and motivating, and we hope you will use the many tools provided to activate your own creativity and passion for the internal audit profession. Start today: Show the world you’re proud to be an internal auditor!
